The Rawls Course is home to the Texas Tech men's and women's golf teams. In a recent edition of Golfweek Magazine, it was named the second best golf course in the state. That is up four spots from last year. The Pine Dunes Resort and Golf Club in Frankston is ranked number one.


The long awaited clubhouse and team facility, all state of the art, is now under construction, which will give the Tech golf teams one of the best facilities in the country.

This course, named after Tech alum Jerry S. Rawls, who donated a majority of the funding, is also open to the public. I've played this course and it's fun. It's long, the fairways are wide so you don't get frustrated being in the rough a lot.

There are several bunkers and sand traps that make it even more of a challenge. In fact the sand traps remind you of the ones you see over at the courses in Scotland. Deep and nasty.

Lubbock and Texas Tech should be proud to have such a fine facility.
